Henry Thomas, born
September 9, 1971 in San Antonio, was paid a whopping
$15,000 for his role in E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
(1982). But hey, that is a lot of dough for an 11
year old. These days Thomas plays in a band called
the Blueheelers and continues to act. Some of his
more recent movies include Legends of the Fall (1994)
and Gangs on New York (2002). He did plenty in the
80's, even as a kid, starring in Raggedy Man (1981),
Cloak and Dagger (1984), Misunderstood (1984), Frog
Dreaming (1986), Murder One (1988), and Valmont (1989).
Still, he will always be Elliot to us here.
